Strutting the Red, White and Blue up Sound Beach Ave: Old Greenwich Memorial Day Parade Highlights

By Leslie Yager
Brilliant sunshine warmed the annual Old Greenwich Memorial Day parade. Parade-goers of all ages lined Sound Beach Ave, applauding veterans and scrambling for generous amounts of candy that parade marchers tossed into the crowds.

There were all manner of antique cars and even an antique police ambulance. There were dogs in red bandanas and dancers and gardeners. There were veterans and politicians, boats and trucks, motorcycles and firetrucks. Just a perfect day and a perfect parade.
